This whole 'race' thing is just old, played out and stupid.

That pretty much sums it up.... Last I checked, we're all part of the "human race" so in what way, exactly, are we different? :rolleyes:

"this whole 'race' thing is just old, played out and stupid. i don't care. it just absolutely ticks me off that folks in such a vulnerable position would literally spit on those who try to help them, regardless.

that's the rub.

talk about a cold-hearted low-life!"

amen to that!

I work in a skilled nursing facility in a predominantly white area. We have some staff of color and some gay/lesbian staff. Only one of our long term residents has a problem with these staff so we avoid assigning those staff to him when possible. His behavior is of course unacceptable, but to his defense he is from an era when AA were generally referred to by names that we now consider derogatory and most gay/lesbian people were not at all open about their sexual orientation.

as long as they do their work, but when they start bad mouthing other colours, thats where I draw the line. Patients are sick, deal with the illness, whether they are black, white, brown. They have the same sicknesses that we white boys/girls do. The racials slurs start somewhere...as previous posts.

Now lets get back to work.
